We had such a delightful experience in Corbin Brashear’s Needlefelting Puppies class that we are bringing her back by popular demand.
We will dance in the whimsical border between 2 and 3 dimensions in this wild and wooly tapestry class. We will explore the wonder of the magical felting needle, and its power to transform imagination into form, as we create lusciously colored, richly layered tapestries, embellished or framed with found natural objects such as driftwood or dried kelp.
We will start with a blank piece of prefelt as our canvas, layering on colors and sculpting wool into bas-relief with our felting needle. Then we will attach the natural objects onto the tapestry, incorporating them into the design by sewing or wiring them onto the piece. No previous needlefelting experience is necessary.
